To get ready for summer planting, we started seeds indoors for tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, broccoli, basil, and other herbs.
Since we are new to gardening in the ground, we've needed to find good information from websites and books. The Boulder Culinary Gardeners' website has an excellent Boulder/Denver planting guide. We have read a few different gardening books as well, including How to Grow More Vegetables and Square Foot Gardening. I like the detail and explanations in How to Grow More Vegetables. What's your favorite gardening book or resource?

I went to work in the kitchen and I wrote down a recipe for what I did and everything but I have to say that Eric's nutballs were a lot tastier than mine. He made his nutballs with TVP (texturized vegetable protein), walnuts, bread crumbs, etc. I made mine with navy beans, peanuts, walnuts, bread crumbs, etc. My nutballs were crumbly and dry. His held together and and had a nice texture. Alas. I will not bother you with my recipe, just a nice picture. Oh, but I do want to say that fennel is key no matter what you do.
